My dd has rsv. We are going on day 3. She has been running fevers from 101 to 105. Last night she coughed so hard her nose started bleeding. Tonight she was crying and started coughing till she coughed up blood and mucus and got another nose bleed. What can I do?



Btw she's two.





Been at the Dr for hours. They're putting her on antibiotics. The Dr. thinks she has a bacterial infection on top of the rsv. At first he thought she may have gotten something stuck up her nose, but xrays showed nothing. I just want my baby back to feeling well.

How long does this crap last. Her fever is 105 again?

Generally rsv is a low grade fever, 105 sounds pretty high. With the crazy amount of mucus and swelling of the tissues in nose and throat, the bleeding isn't shocking. It gets irritated very easily. You should call your pediatrician or er for further advice.

It's scaring me. I don't like it at all. I wish I could just make it go away for her.

Have you been alternating motrin with tyenol? is the baby on medication from the doctor yet? 

A fever of 105 in a child isnt something to panic about immediately if its a one time thing. if it keeps going up to that, or stays there with medication, then i would go to the ER. 

children under 5 often can get fevers that high. if she has already been seen by a doctor, follow the doctors advice. he would have given you a sheet with information on when to go back, or when to go to the ER. what does that say?

Yes I've been alternating. All I was told was if she has to much trouble breathing to take her in.
